It has a modern safety ground! you can see it entirely exposed, poorly wrapped around one of the conductors.

And it's been rewired with a standard base so you can use regular household "A" type lamps, so the optics won't work right anymore, since they are based on a small filament lamp in front of a spherical reflector.

Just looks like ordinary Home Depot ceiling fixtures.  Where's the mystery?  Where's the intrigue?  Where's the Patina :)

A deep revelation for me:  "Patina" in the scrap industry = "tube warmth" in the audiophile world.

Reminds me of the chapel at a nearby camp. (My church holds its annual Bible Camp there.)

The "stage lights" were clamp-lamps (like you'd use in the workshop) with red, blue, and... YELLOW PAR38 75W outdoor flood lamps. No means of dimming, but you could choose between red, blue, and yellow (or two or three). Needless to say, getting an accurate color balance was impossible. The lamps themselves were mounted to hinged panels that folded down from the flat, sheetrock (with popcorn texture) ceiling, counterbalanced with old window sash weights. The wiring was dicey, as well.

Alas, this last year the "stage lights" had been decommissioned. Apparently someone wised up to how unsafe (and unusable) they were.
